As soon as I logged in, there were small white rectangular artifacts at the top of the screen. They also randomly appeared around windows after some time of use. Also, there is tarring of the windows/screen when I tried to move windows around (especially big windows quickly), or switched workspaces. None of this happened in the previous version.

I have confirmed this is a problem with either mesa, mesa-libgl, or intel-dri as I have downloaded just those three packages (using abs), and nothing else, to the older version and the problems have all gone away.

Additional info:
* Affects mesa(-libgl)-10.1.0-2 and intel-dri-10.1.0-2
* KDE4.12.3

Graphics Card:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

Steps to reproduce:
Turn on computer and run X with the affected version of mesa.
This task depends upon

Sorry, I meant "downgraded", not "downloaded".

Has this been fixed with the new mesa release? If not please file an upstream bug report we can follow.

The mesa 10.1.1-1 update fixed my tearing issues!
